Not a true EDI but could be. I was the Utilities Payable Accountant for a large corporation. We received Utilities invoices from cities across the nation where we had locations. I created a solution to enter the utilities into a payables file. The nice thing was I did the lookup by the utility companies' account numbers. That provided the Vendor ID and GL coding. On Fridays we wrote the checks for the week. Some companies actually were sent an ACH file which was handled by the accounting system (not GP). When I started we had 42 locations. When I left they had 400+ locations.
In my current role, I do not process the volume of invoices. We use an EDI add-on to send purchase orders and receive invoices. Currently with just one vendor. However we are in talks to add two other vendors.
One of the invoice types I do process is for our credit card statements. I can download the detail from the credit card company. I import to my solution. I can edit the GL coding as needed. Lookups are performed for repetitive vendor purchases. The detail is uploaded to GP via Integration Manager. I can also use the same file to create the accrual for expenses that belong to "last month" which is uploaded to Financials as a journal entry via Integration Manager.
